Chicken-Fried News: Moving out 

Wen-FALLIN.jpg

A wonky AC and window rot are doing what Oklahoma voters could not: forcing Mary Fallin to leave the Governor’s Mansion.

For six glorious months starting at the end of May, Gov. Fallin will vacate the mansion while repair work is done on the heating and cooling system, rebuilding rotting windows and waterproofing the leaky basement.

In the interim, our fair leader will move into another state-owned property. Maybe she can use this as an opportunity to tour some of the state’s facilities in the direst need of repair. Maybe sharing a room with folks at the Charles E. “Bill” Johnson Correctional Center, 1856 E. Flynn St., in Alva or the John H. Lilley Correctional Center, 105150 N. 3670 Road, in Boley will help her free up a little money in the budget.

“We’re not changing a thing,” Capitol architect Duane Mass told Tulsa World. “We are just fixing broken things.”

So does that mean they’ll start working on Fallin’s office next?
